Yes, I do similar (well, I specify CONFIG_QEMU) and so QEMU_TAG does nothing
much for me also. Generally I find the build breaks rarely enough that I've
never bothered to change things.

Perhaps if CONFIG_QEMU is specified then the build system should clone from
the local repository, or copy it (which is presumably fast) and then do a
private checkout in that clone/copy, so that QEMU_TAG is always respected.

Getting the right qemu version is a bit of a crapshoot right now.
